All of you wild-eyed, mouth foamers on either side of the political aisle are way too caught up in your own demagoguery (okay, apologizes to Mrs. Wamsley - my 4th grade english teacher). Dudes and dudettes, it's not about the politics - it's about the music. Feel free to express your political views in whatever way you wish but understand this - both liberals and conservatives enjoy the Cheese. I'm a hard core conservative, Republican. No I'm not a Nazi and I don't have a pair of jack boots in my closet (there are several guns though ;P) I really dig the Cheese and so do both of my adult children (21 and 18 if you care) Despite the differences in our political views, I think it is pretty freakin' cool that when I am at an Incident I am enjoying the music just as much as someone who is at the other end of the political spectrum from me. How cool is that? Just enjoy the show, enjoy the time together and celebrate the freedoms we all have (and many take for granted). I for one greatly appreciate the fact that in this country we can all disagree - all I ask is that we disagree repectfully and maintain a semblance of human dignity towards each other whether you are wearing dreads and a hemp skirt or a Hart, Schaeffner and Marks suit with Johnston and Murphy shoes. Recognize and celebrate our differences as a freedom that does not exist anywhere else in this world. It's so much better than worrying about whether or not the guy next to you wants to cut off your head because you aren't "like" him and think differently than he does.
So all of you who use this venue for spewing hate and name calling because others out there think differently from you, look deep within and chill out!!
Peace - Be Well All.

Subject: It's about the music
In this forum people are supposed to focus on the music and not politics. Anyone with half a brain, myself included, can easily get the music without most if not all of the political ranting.
True SCI fans should lay off the band and eachother and enjoy the groove of which there is plenty in this show.
Having said all that, I applaud the Cheese for sharing their views.

So listen people, if you just want the music then skip the "delegations" and you won't even hear political stuff. I cannot emphasize enough how good this fall tour was and how monumental this show was.It'll go into history as one of those places you wish you'd been, that's a promise. So leave your low expectations you got from all these haters at the door at walk out into that warm, bright, musical adventure...they really, really gave their all.

awesome show quality is a little lacking, but if you don't like the political theme get the fuck out man, seriously u need to stay at the jessica simpson shows were ur kind is accepted.
sorry to all who dont want to hear this stuff but i have trouble letting things like this go
I pledge no allegiance, nigga fuck the president's speeches
I'm baptized by America and covered in leeches
The dirty water that bleaches your soul and your facial features
Drownin' you in propaganda that they spit through the speakers
And if you speak about the evil that the government does
The Patriot Act'll track you to the type of your blood
They try to frame you, and say you was tryna sell drugs
And throw a federal indictment on niggaz to show you love
This shit is run by fake Christians, fake politicians
Look at they mansions, then look at the conditions you live in
All they talk about is terrorism on television
They tell you to listen, but they don't really tell you they mission
They funded Al-Qaeda, and now they blame the Muslim religion
Even though Bin Laden, was a CIA tactician
They gave him billions of dollars, and they funded his purpose

Subject: great show, but politics have their place.
hippies get so angry when someone says they don't want to hear sci's politics. its not an issue of what thier opinion is, i don't care if they had been the world's largest Bush backers. i don't pay good money for some corny mc and a bunch of banter about the importance for voting but only if it's for the right candidate. you want to hear politics turn on cspan, but damn their is not a thing in the world wrong with a person saying that they don't want to be alienated by politics at an event that is suppossed to be about the music. so you want to support their views, thats super. hug a tree, don't shower, and protest the man thru unemployment but shut the hell up and keep your oppinion to yourself, because believe it or not everyone doesn't want to hear it and most people don't cram their opinion into your ears.
about the show...
killer 3rd set, no doubt the best. the 2nd set was no doubt interesting with some covers im sure well never hear again but lacked tightness and energy that come from the old staples(whats with phish bashing? can't people like multiple bands wihtout someone saying the other band sucks, get a life). first set was solid. i like the sirius sbd feed better but different strokes. this sound good though. over all a great show, not perfect but well worth the grab.
Now, this IS NOT a political forum so I won't rant and rave about my political standings like many posts before me. The point of this is one thing: MUSIC.
Cheese went into this place and just fucking rocked the house. The issue was the party, man, not the political stuff, but if they want to throw a little awareness to a swing state in a very important election, go ahead guys, be my guest.
This band is undergoing some very intresting changes, one of them being an ever-growing fan base, and with that a public voice. Everybody has the right to an opinion and now they can talk about theirs'. Please don't come if you don't like it, you all knew it would be there, and it's you, not them who put a damper on my trip. This show should have five stars, but because of petty, narrow-minded people it doesn't... oh well. I'm proud to be part of this incredible time, place, and energetic spirit. Remember; "Nothing lasts forever".

Anyways, the show was sick, and I'm just gonna highlight acouple parts. The Born on the Wrong Planet was fucking awesome. Really funky and groovy. I walked in just after they started playing it, and I was pretty happy. Second set was just as tight. Rockin' in the free world was amazing. Guess you had to be there. Third set had some entrenching jams. WOW. I can't say much more. Absolutely great show.
Furthermore, this recording is great. I really don't think you can get a better audience recording than this. Good job Tim.

Anyway, non-politically, this show was damn good, especially set 3. Covers- eh, it was good to hear them played for the first time, Peace Train was amazing, but all in all set 2 was rather short due to the political nonsense to lead it off. I appreaciate the effort peak experience, etc, puts in, but it only seldom works and is almost always over the top.
Set 3 though, wow. I am still digesting the early Thanksgiving feast that was the 3rd set, so I am not even going to bother trying to review it in detail yet except to repeatedly say Wow. I would at least like to note the great fiddle jam at the end of African Skies (called a Bowa tease by some but really just a random awesome fiddle jam). And an official welcome to J Hann.
